    wow thats shocking john. glad to see your ok. thats the most important part. something good has come out of this in regards to the toxic value of zoas. sorry you had to take one for the team. but i wont be handling them without gloves from now on , and will tell my kids about it also. again, glad all is good. now as an unapproved dr, i would prescribe alcohol. lol.

    Johnnie,

    Most palytoxin reactions are nothing but allergic reactions thank God. However, you were wise to take every precaution and get to the doctor. Palytoxin poisoning is typically because people accidentally rub their mucus membranes (eyes, nose, mouth) with hands that had a small amount of palytoxin.

    I hear that, And I found that out the hard way...scary stuff when you are not sure and you read acute case information... but in the end everything is good... everybody, including the zoa, is safe and sound....
